How can I get Rent Recovery removed from my report?
As a college student in 2014, I had lived in the same apartments for 3 years and once some tensions and a potentially dangerous situation with a roommate arose, I needed to move. I had already signed my lease again for the next year so I considered moving to a different building but that included a fee I couldn't afford. I DEFINITELY needed to move. I tried finding someone to take over my lease so I wouldn't be responsible for an apartment I wasn't going to live in. I explained my situation to the apartment manager and I paid a couple months up and he said he'd handle the sublease situation. I moved out and in 2016, I checked my credit report to see a nearly $4000 charge in collections with Rent Recovery Solutions for that lease!!! I obviously don't have $4000 sitting around because I'm still just a student. Are there any other ways to resolve this, since management said he'd find me a replacement? Thanks.
